Labs and Britts at the Lake

Good morning,

That's our daughter and two of our grandsons in the image above.
We are still at our friend Erica's home and are now down at the lake at the back of her property. Pictured above are one of Erica's Brittanies and our Lab, Penny.  They are having a blast scaring frogs into the pond.
Finally, I am able to catch a dragonfly with my camera.  Now you see him...
...now you don't!
Here comes Buster taking a shortcut across the lake.  ;)  These dogs are truly in their element here.
 This is the view from the far side of the lake looking back up to the house.
 A dog's life here is a pretty good life!  This is Tressel.
 The dogs took turns making the rounds of the lake, then swimming across it.
 Here comes our Penny.  They'll all get baths when they get back up on the deck.

Then it's finally time to go home.

Huge thanks to Erica for allowing us to enjoy her pool and lake.  Thanks, too, to our daughter Catherine who was here to help us with all the dogs.  We all had a blast!

 I hope you've enjoyed this great summer fun with us.

 Lois

It's great to be a well-loved dog I think! Your photos are very nice, but that second from last photo is just gorgeous, with the composition you managed in it.

There is a natural pond behind our house and if we ever miss our lab, you can bet he's gone for a swim.
Fun post.
